LPOC – Petition to Reduce VAT to 5% on Listed Building Maintenance
We are pleased that the Listed Property Owners’ Club (LPOC) contacted us to help promote their Petition. The LPOC VAT Petition calls for a VAT reduction to 5% for approved alterations and repairs to Listed buildings. There are many listed thatch properties whose repairs/updates will be affected positively if this VAT petition is successful.
Why a VAT Petition?
LPOC said “HM Treasury’s decision to remove the zero rate in 2012 was a major blow to the owners of listed homes and since that decision there has been a significant fall in owners seeking listed building consent.
This has obviously had an impact on specialist suppliers like yourself who do so much to help owners protect an important part of the UK’s heritage. As part of our on-going Political Campaign for Owners we have launched a national petition to make the case for the reduction and demonstrate the strength of feeling across the country about the damaging effects of the Treasury.
If we can reach 10,000 signatures the Government will have to respond; 100,000 and we may secure a debate in Parliament.”
